US promoter also worked with The Rolling Stones and Ramones
Veteran US rock promoter Don Kirshner has died aged 76.
Kirshner suffered heart failure in Boca Raton, Florida on Monday (January 17), reports Billboard.
Kansas drummer Phil Ehart paid tribute to Kirshner, who signed them in 1973, by saying that the band “owes its 38-year career” to him.
Kirshner‘s wide-ranging success in the music business earned him the nickname ‘The Man With The Golden Ear’ from contemporaries.
